Understanding Your Explanation of Benefits (EOB)

We accept all PPO insurances at Advanced Dental Care!  If you are using dental insurance at your dental visits, you will receive an Explanation of Benefits or EOB either by mail or email shortly after your visit.  EOBs can be confusing, because they look a lot like invoices (and nobody likes invoices!).  An EOB is provided to patients covered by insurance to explain what services were rendered by a provider and what the insurance company paid for on behalf of the patient.

Learning how to read EOBs is very useful to making sure you are aware of what your insurance company covers for you and instances where they did not pay for a service.  A standard dental EOB will have the subscriber’s name, the patient’s name, your member ID, and the claim number.  It is important to make sure that your information is correct so there are no mix-ups with another patient.

As many of you know, ADC Cares is an extension of Advanced Dental Care that exists to serve our patients, our community, and those we’ve never even met!  We’ve participated in many community events this year such as raising money for Costa Mesa, raising money for the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, Oral Cancer Awareness, Heart Disease Awareness, Alzheimer’s Awareness, and a Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank.

Now it’s December and this year we wanted to do something different.  We’ve partnered with the Families Helping Families Agency and adopted the Garza Family!  We’re helping this family of four get the things they need and want for the holiday season.  We all get down on tough times and sometimes we just need a helping hand!
